us right now is columnist michael goodwin. he won the pulitzer prize and also voted for barak obama because in the beginning, you were sold on that, weren't you? >> i loved that idea. i still love that idea. i still believe that is what this country needs is to think bigger. you look at washington, it's polarized. the country is polarized. barak obama, however, has made it worse. >> in what way? >> i think he's a partisan. he's an ideological partisan and we see it on everything. obamacare being the biggest example where no republican ideas, no republican votes. only straight party line vote. you see it with the senate changing the rules to limit republican power. he's all for that. so this is a president who talks about uniting the country, but when push comes to shove, he only chooses one side of every argument and therefore, the country is more divided as a result of his presidency than it was before. >> i can't tell you how many times i've heard people say, it seems like he's pitting one part of america against the other. you would hate to think that's true, but you look at the

? the u.s. is right now in the middle of one of the biggest pushes to raise wages that i've seen in 20 years working in this field. president obama has called for a $10 minimum wage hike. but, you know, given the gridlock in washington, the states are starting to act. california approved a $10 minimum wage hike and no sooner had that been inked than a consebive placed it on the ballot to go to $12. the high cost cities are pushing for even higher wages. voters in sea-tac, washington, approved a $15 wage. now cities like chicago and new york are calling for wages of similar levels. i think what's driving this is what president obama called the defining challenge of our time in this economics talk yesterday. the fact is, the restaurant industry noted that the majority of the jobs our economy is creating are in these low payment fields like restaurant and retail. these aren't team jobs if they ever were. now tens of millions of adult americans spend their time cycling through these careers, these jobs. at $9 an hour, they're not sustainable. so what the fast food workers are calling for i
